I Feel Pretty | Shifty

What could possibly be more versatile than a great shift dress?  It can be dressed up or down with ease and made perfectly appropriate for any season.

Simple Southern Style recently sent me not one, but two shift dresses to style from their collection.

The first is this gorgeous green Holiday Shift.  For a fall daytime look, I paired it simply with a leopard scarf and cognac riding boots.

For my second look, heels, a statement making necklace and my favorite ruffled wrap make it holiday party appropriate.

    Lady, you look gorgeous. Both of those Shifts are great. I love that shade of Green and how you paired it with the Leopard Scarf. My favorite shift of the 2 is the Geometric-print Blue/Maroon one. Love it. You have been looking gorgeous in every single outfit, lately.

    Hi Alison!

    You look SO gorgeous!!!! I am loving the leopard with green and those tan boots. Honestly, every time I come to your blog I’m always in awe of your style – I think you are just so stunning!

    Enjoy the rest of your week – and thank you for hosting!! Xx

  19. Autum

    I love both looks but am partial to the flowered shift and cobalt tights. It’s stunning together!

  20. Tiffany

    That green dress is gorgeous on you!

  21. Jenna

    I love how you styled both of those shift dresses! I tend to shy away from them because I feel like they look like a paper sack on me, but styling them differently really makes a huge difference!!

  22. Callie

    You are so gorgeous, Alison! I love that hunter green shift dress especially. The ways you styled it were so cute and fashionable. 🙂

  23. Michael

    I’ve always shyed away from these because I always felt they were shapeless and made me look messy but recently I’ve seen them styled and they’re really cute!

  24. Michael

    I’ve always shyed away from these because I always felt they were shapeless and made me look messy but recently I’ve seen them styled, like you did, and they’re really cute!

  25. amy

    i am a huge fan of shift dresses! they’re so easy to wear and accessorize but you always look polished and chic 🙂 love the first look with the green and leopard!

  26. Stephanie

    What a pretty shade of green! Love the Frye boots. Happy Halloween!

  27. Lisa - respect the shoes

    Green and leopard look fab together – but I am loving that ruffle wrap sweater!

  28. Lyddiegal

    the green shift is a really gorgeous color, and pairs so well with the leopard!

  29. MorganizewithMe!

    I love how you made the green dress look completely different by changing accessories. Goes to show what a difference accessories do make!

  30. Charlie

    The two green outfits are so different it’s almost like another person – great restyling. Thanks so much for hosting.

  31. Arielle

    I love dresses, especially shift dressed. You can wear them anywhere, and depending on how you style it, you won’t stand out! Love the printed one you have!

  32. Rachel G

    I really like the sleeve style on that dress! Shift dresses are so comfy but they look very classic!
